numbers, i am joined by neil irwin, economics reporter at the "washington post." and diane swonk, chief economist at mesirow financial. diane, start with you, was this big drop in the unemployment number a surprise or what's going on? >> well, certainly it was a surprise. we can see allots of volatility in this number from a month-to-month basis. we saw the big increase in employment. we saw big decrease in unemployment. but over time both this report and the other reports that's the payroll survey tend to converge. and i think that's important to remember. it's also important to remember that in general a 2/10 movement or 3/10 movement in unemployment rate actually isn't statistically significant. i know it makes the headlines but 7.8% is not all that different from 8% or 7.6% on a statistical basis. so i think that's also important to remember in this day, it is highly volatile with a wide range on what is really significant. >> brown: of course it makes for a big headline in a political campaign but before we head to the politics fill in a little bit more about these two surve

next year, monsanto told investors seed sales should jump. diane eastabrook has details. >> reporter: analysts say monsanto's fourth quarter earnings took a hit because farmers purchased the bulk of their corn and soybean seeds earlier this year. excluding special items, monsanto lost $.44 a share in the quarter that ended august 31, double what it lost in the same quarter last year, and bigger than analysts expected. but the company thinks t bad news ends there. monsanto forecast seed sales to increase just shy of 20% in the current fiscal year. analysts think that's a reachable target because international sales should be strong and u.s. farmers will be rebounding from last summer's drought. >> in terms of impact of the drought grains stocks are low so corn and soybeans and the other seeds that they sell are going to need to be planted in great quantities so that should also deliver growth. >> reporter: werneth thinks even if the economies here and abroad worsen next year, monsanto should still reap solid profits because in good times and bad, people and animals still have to eat.
